  • From The Boathouse: Check out more of Catalina

    Ahoy! One night last week, I was cruising along our coastline with the owner of a new yacht, and he wondered why we could not see the light of Avalon Harbor on Catalina Island. Well, I explained the curvature of the Earth and that Avalon is actually...
  • Wu: Fire to my feet

    So this past Monday was the third and final Feet to the Fire Forum for this election cycle, and I must say that I've learned tremendous amounts about the Costa Mesa-Newport Beach electorate, the importance about doing well at such forums, and a lot...
  • Carnett: Finding my own basso profondo

    Longtime Boston Red Sox public-address announcer Carl Beane died last month. Referred to by many as "The Voice of Fenway Park," he was in his 10th season as Red Sox announcer. His affable but measured style exuded class. In a moving tribute to Beane,...
  • From the Boathouse: Tax or not, boycott is wrong

    Ahoy! I remember when I started writing about the tidelands tax — the residents with docks on the bay were quiet. Oh, Mike Henn, it is a tax, but I agree with you on no boycott of the parade. I mentioned that once the commercial, marina and...
  • Wu: Meet your new conservative columnist

    After almost 20 months writing about Newport Beach politics for the Newport Beach Independent, here I am "gracing" (a term I use liberally) the pages of the infamous Daily Pilot. If you're not familiar with my work, I'm sure you are reading this...
  • Letters From The Editor: Feet to the Fire Forum will screen Assembly candidates

    California's gerrymandered legislative districts make for predictable elections. The districts are Volvo safe. Voter registration dictates which party will win, making the primaries the only real "contests." The winner is nearly always the incumbent....
  • Wu: Writing for the Pilot is a dream

    My history with the Daily Pilot is a fond one. It started in 1990, in the midst of my junior year at UC Irvine. I was looking for another job and stumbled across an ad for someone to deliver the Daily Pilot throughout the Balboa Peninsula, starting at...
  • Carnett: 200 columns and still having fun

    It was as lame a salutation as I've ever penned. Here's how it went: "Have you ever tried skateboarding down the side of Mt. Everest wearing nothing but your insulated skivvies? "You haven't? "Well, I've never written a sports column for (this...
  • Food critic, chef saw life as a feast

    Food critic, chef saw life as a feast
    Corn dogs. It was the only type of cuisine that our mother, former Gossiping Gourmet columnist Elle Harrow, could not cook. We were about 7 and 14 years old, respectively, and every morning, she would ask us what we'd want for dinner that evening. "Corn...
  • Mailbag: Dr. Laura did the right thing in quitting

    Loyalty to a former boss is certainly commendable, but for columnist Steve Smith to compare Dr. Laura Schlessinger's recent "eleven n-word rant" to that of the legendary social critic and humorist Lenny Bruce boggles the imagination ("City Life: Another...
  • City Life: Shrouded in consultants

    The four great men whose faces are carved into Mt. Rushmore had the ability to write their own speeches and connect with voters on their own terms. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln had a set of principles that...
  • Candidate debate set for Sept. 30

    COSTA MESA — Several Orange County news outlets are joining forces for a political forum involving candidates for the Costa Mesa and Newport Beach city councils. The Newport-Mesa Feet to the Fire Forum will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 30 at...
